Not to be alarmist but… are we using more electricity than ever?
Sustainable growth? Remember that? Green me. When the mustache of understanding brings up sustainable growth, let’s not forget this part of it. How much electricity we are using, where the 20 million barrels of oil we use per day comes from… this is the new ‘destroying the village in order to save it’: incoherence.
Bonus: what is the appropriate use of alarmism?
